17 ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ Reference Matthew
Καὶ ἐλθόντων πρὸς τὸν ὀχλον προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἄνθρωπος γονυπετῶν αὐτὸνThe Healing of a Boy with a Demon Mt.17.14-21 | Mk.9.14-29 | Lk.9.37-43And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and kneeling before him said,
καὶ λέγων, Κύριε, ἐλέησόν μου τὸν υἱόν, ὅτι σεληνιάζεται καὶ κακῶς πάσχει· πολλάκις γὰρ πίπτει εἰς τὸ πῦρ καὶ πολλάκις εἰς τὸ ὑδωρ. "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; for often he falls into the fire, and often into the water.
καὶ προσήνεγκα αὐτὸν τοῖς μαθηταῖς σου, καὶ οὐκ ἠδυνήθησαν αὐτὸν θεραπεῦσαι.  And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him."
ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Ὦ γενεὰ ἀπιστος καὶ διεστραμμένη, ἑως πότε μεθ' ὑμῶν ἐσομαὶ ἑως πότε ἀνέξομαι ὑμῶν; φέρετέ μοι αὐτὸν ὧδε.  And Jesus answered, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me."
καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ τὸ δαιμόνιον· καὶ ἐθεραπεύθη ὁ παῖς ἀπὸ τῆς ὡρας ἐκείνης.  And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.
Τότε προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ τῷ Ἰησοῦ κατ' ἰδίαν εἶπον, Διὰ τί ἡμεῖς οὐκ ἠδυνήθημεν ἐκβαλεῖν αὐτό;  Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?"
ὁ δὲ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Διὰ τὴν ὀλιγοπιστίαν ὑμῶν· ἀμὴν γὰρ λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν ἐχητε πίστιν ὡς κόκκον σινάπεως, ἐρεῖτε τῷ ὀρει τούτῳ, Μετάβα ἐνθεν ἐκεῖ, καὶ μεταβήσεται· κα ὶ οὐδὲν ἀδυνατήσει ὑμῖν.  He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."
τοῦτο δὲ τὸ γένος οὐκ ἐκπορεύεται εἰ μὴ ἑν προσευχῆ καὶ νηστεία.
